GM Patents Autonomous Tech to Train New Drivers Sans Instructor

Autonomous vehicle makers promise safer roads, with vehicles that can navigate roads while making fewer mistakes than humans do. We have a long way to go until we reach truly “autonomous” vehicles, but what if autonomous technology could be used to help humans drive more safely?

GM has filed a patent describing autonomous technology that can evaluate and train drivers using sensors and monitoring how the driver operates controls like the accelerator and wheel. By comparing a trainee’s inputs to recommended driving instructions generated by a driving algorithm, the system scores the driver. If their score meets preset thresholds, the system can selectively grant the driver with greater control of the vehicle.
